Silence the Inconvenient Voices : or just call it “Blaspheme”

Posted: November 23, 2009 in Bill of Rights, Global Order, Politics, Terrorism, Uncategorized

 International Christian Concern (ICC) is reporting that a major effort is underway by Muslim countries (OIC) Organisation of the Islamic Conference)  to pass a UN resolution which they say would lead to persecution of Christian minorities.

At what point do countries REFUSE to submit to these WORLD Regulations?  I don’t know about other countries, but it seems to me that many citizens of the United States of America, including some of those that have thru illegal means arrived to our great nation have what I would like to describe as the independent gene: the innate desire to succeed and LIVE with little to no involvement from the government. 

Americans, usually characterized as hard-working, independent, self-sufficient, fighting, determined,  and just (to name a few) are having these personal beliefs and ways of thinking challenged not only by a federal government but apparently now also a  global arm –  of the totalitarian kind.

Certainly, as we add generations to the population rolls, I my guess is that for every singular, lazy, socialistic, government dependant person added, human nature counters that by ADDING and nurturing a hard working, entrepreneurial, capitalistic, self-sufficient American – whether he be of recently immigrant parents or from the more established type.  (Perhaps this is wishful thinking on my part)

Anyway, I digress, yet again.

My experience is that, among the people I know. Libertarian, Conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, Independents or Moderates….if American…the same ideals really truly apply.  The basic “American” ideals of  “working, independent, self-sufficient, fighting, determined” still apply.  YES, REALLY.

Notice I didn’t mention the Socialist Democrats or Communists (hell-bent on CHANGING the American philosophy).

Many times, political beliefs have very little to do with the innate feelings of the individual. Thru my observation, I have found that if worded in a way that can be understood – most groups will respond in similarly to the question.

Example: Ask someone…

Do  you believe all Americans are entitled to affordable health care?

Vs

Do you believe all Americans should have affordable health care at the cost of a smaller group of individuals?

Point being, if you ask any person(regardless of political affiliation)- in this particular case, 

DO you believe and support the idea that a smaller group, thru a global governing body, should override our American Constitution to the detriment of what Americans are allowed to say in their own backyard? 

My guess is the reply you will get across the board, from any political group (except the Socialist/Communist) is a resounding NO. 

Which brings me back to my original question.

At what point do [Americans] REFUSE to submit to these WORLD Regulations?  World regulations that at the root, not only silence our voices in our own back yard but spill over to how we might offend our neighbor ½ way across the globe or in our own neighborhood.

Regardless of what good you think the UN does . The fact of the matter is that the global heavy hand is looking to take OUR Constitution and render it useless.  A Constitution not only gave us freedom of religion, but freedom to express ourselves about things secular and religious – so long as in that process we were not harming or infringing on those opinions or religions.

This treaty/resolution intends to buffer a group from possible criticism from the rest of the world population.  Do I care or think that it is fair that citizens of the world be silenced?  Yes, but not so much that I want OUR countsubmitted to that kind of censorship.  Why?  Simply, because our AMERICA is held to a higher standard by way of  The Constitution.

Innately, most Americans carry the independent gene, preventing them from going along with something so controlling and sinister?  No?  At the very least on a “global” level? 

Perhaps this proposed U.N. resolution on the “defamation of religions” will stall and not move forward. We however, must all be cautious as the seeds are out there, looking for fertile ground to root and sprout themselves.  Sinister, indeed. Without fear-mongering, beware when our country submits to a global governing will -now or ever.

From a Fox News article (link )

Critics give some recent news events as examples of how the U.N. “blasphemy resolution” has emboldened Islamic authorities and threatened Westerners:

— On Oct. 3 in Great Britain, three men were charged for plotting to kill the publisher of the novel “The Jewel of Medina,” which gives a fictional account of the Prophet Muhammad and his child bride. FOXNews.com reported U.S. publisher Random House Inc., was going to release the book but stopped it from hitting shelves after it claimed that “credible and unrelated sources” said the book could incite violence by a “small, radical segment.”

— An Afghan student is on death row for downloading an article about the role of women in Islam, FOXNews.com also reported.

— In December 2007 “a court reportedly sentenced two foreigners to six months in prison for allegedly marketing a book deemed offensive to Aisha, one of the Prophet Muhammad’s wives,” the U.S. government said.

— A British teacher was sentenced to 15 days in jail in Sudan for offending Islam by allowing students to name the class teddy bear Muhammad in November 2007.

— In February 2007 in Egypt an Internet blogger was sentenced to four years in prison for writing a post that critiqued Islam.

— In 2004, Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh was murdered after the release of his documentary highlighting the abuse of Muslim women.

Update on this Resolution since Lou Dobbs Video.

Gladly Hillary makes a good point in this article. 

The US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, said atheists and believers were entitled to express their feelings about religion, and argued that “these differences should be met with tolerance, not with the suppression of discourse”.

  1. Very good website you have here but I was
    wanting to know if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get feedback from
    other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thanks a lot!

  2. Hi there, this weekend is good in support of me,
    as this point in time i am reading this fantastic educational post
    here at my house.

  3. It’s very simple to find out any matter on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this paragraph at this website.

  5. My response to a FB friend : **eryl, i watched this video and was of course as always outraged. i went ahead and posted it on my blog and made some comments as well as some follow-up. From my “minimal research” i found that the resolution is loosing steam(fortunately) but as we all know…this is not the last of it…it will likely be brought up in another fashion or form.
    as … u said it….EVIL FORCES at work…indeed!!! Sinister!
    we have to get the word out, because these changes have not been done overnight….it is thru a slow and sure wearing down of our foundation and beliefs. it will not end.
